ASMIR Begovic has joined Qarabag on a loan deal until January.

The goalkeeper has been out of favour for Cherries this season, not featuring in any of their five fixtures so far with Aaron Ramsdale, Artur Boruc and Mark Travers all selected in matchday squads ahead of him.

And he has now joined the Azerbaijani champions ahead of their transfer window closing later today.

Bosnian international Begovic, 32, joined Cherries from Chelsea for around £10million in 2017 and has played 62 times for Eddie Howe's men.

But after losing his spot in the side in January this year, Begovic has played just twice competitively since with his last appearance coming against Burnley on April 6.

Qarabag, based in Baku, have won the past six domestic league titles and are set to compete alongside Sevilla, Dudelange and APOEL Nicosia in the group stage of this season's Europa League.

They are currently top of the Azerbaijan Premier League with three wins from three, including yesterday's 4-0 victory at Sabail.
